"For our members, attendees and exhibitors, the collocations will add even more value to the MODEX 2012 event; the largest being the Georgia Logistics Summit which last year hosted 1,300 attendees from 21 states and expects to draw even more in conjunction with MODEX 2012."

"The MODEX 2012 Conference will feature leading-edge topics in manufacturing, distribution and the supply chain, exploring subjects as such as the impact of the Panama Canal expansion to sustainability, security, visibility over four days of sessions led by industry experts."
